I bought a a Cord Wood saw at the Dublin Gas and Steam Engine show this weekend the saw is in excellent condition and came with a right angle drive a spare blade, a spare belt and the original owners manual. I payed a little more than I wanted to spend for one but given the condition and the extras I am ok with that. I mounted it on the tractor as soon as I got home but I didn't like the bracket and the drive so I decided to use the Ford right angle drive that I picked up earlier this summer. All went together well and after some adjustment it ran as it should, quiet and smooth. Later I went back and looked over the drive that came with it, I don't believe it is Ford or Ferguson I will include pictures so maybe someone will recognize it. I was pleasantly surprised find that it is 1-3/8 pto rather than 1-1/8, my other 8n has a 1-3/8 pto shaft so I can run it on either tractor. I will probably never use it to cut wood but rather take to tractor and engine meets along with my Tractor Jack that always draws a lot of attention. Two of the pictures of the right angle drive show the bracket, there are some spacers also to make up for the thickness of the bracket where it bolts to the tractor.

Where in the heck would you find a plastic blade that size?

I see a Foley-Belsaw sawmill in the background. Is that yours too?

The Dellinger Manufacturing Company of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, was the primary supplier of Cordwood Saws for Ferguson-Sherman and later Dearborn after the split. Your belt pulley is a later MHF unit indicated by the '180' part number prefix. The belt pulley required the special LINK bracket (shown on yours) to be attached in order to hitch the saw to the tractor. The saw had a special 'wishbone' bracket on it that then was hitched to the pulley bracket with a linch pin. The standard top link arm was not used. I can't tell by your pictures if you have the wishbone bracket. Your manual should show the proper connections. The belt pulley can be set in one of four positions; left, right, up, or down, however it is stated to never set it in the 'UP' position for SAFETY reasons. Well, since there was no OSHA back then, many items that were made then wouldn't fly today because of all the legal ramifications. The Cordwood Saw would not be OSHA approved today that's for certain. It is also stated in the manual that when using the saw, it is advisable to take the 11-hole drawbar included with every new tractor and lean it against the tractor resting on the earth to ensure a good ground against static electricity building up and possibly causing a fire. After I restored my Dearborn 22-44 Cordwood saw, I learned to remove the rear worklight as when saw is lifted to transport position, it will smash the light. Early belt pulleys used a hard maple rockwood pulley. Later models went to a stamped steel two-piece unit.

Thanks Tim for the information, I do have the wishbone bracket but it doesn't show in the picture. I have a Ford belt pulley with the attached bracket and the wishbone bracket attaches to it as shown in the book, BTW the manual shows a belt pulley with a bracket attached to the back like my Ford one which looks nothing like the one pictured. your correct it does say MHF on it, I didn't include a picture showing how the saw is attached to the tractor but it is exactly as shown in the book. The belt loosens as it is raised to the transport position and tightens as it is lowered to work position, it took some adjustment on the wishbone connection to get it right. Interesting about the drawbar to ground the tractor. Thanks again Don

Nice looking saw. I can't say for sure on the belt drive,

but the part number sure looks like a Ferguson number.

If you're going to take to shows and not use it as a demo,

I would put a plastic blade on it or make sure the metal one

won't cut anyone. Even running. It's a sue happy world. :(

The top bolt closest to the pulley must be tough to get at... Not that the belts needs to be all that tight... but still... it is tucked under the home made bracket.
